Xbox Series X Review – The Power of Dreams

We didn’t review the Xbox One seven years ago. We didn’t get a preview unit and nobody on staff at the time was interested enough to pick it up day one. Man, what a difference seven years makes, because the Xbox Series X is a triumph. Check out our One Dislike, Three Likes article about the Xbox Series X! This console has been built by gamers for gamers, and it comes through in every interaction you have with it. From…

Immortals Fenyx Rising Review

Breath of the Wild meets Assassin’s Creed – it’s a recipe that amazingly we haven’t had until exactly this moment. But boy, does Immortals Fenyx Rising taste good. Mixing in a bit of fourth-wall breaking Borderlands humour and plenty of mythology, this is a game that wears its influences on its sleeves. You enter every “shrine” knowing full well that you’re venturing into a Zelda-like environment, and that’s just fine. It’s prettier than Breath of the Wild and, arguably, offers…

Halo 4 PC Review

Halo 4 is the first instalment in the legendary FPS series to be developed by 343 Industries and completes the now six-game-strong Master Chief Collection. Is it really the red-headed franchise stepchild some claim, or simply a misunderstood gem? Time to squeeze into that snug power armour and find out.

Demon’s Souls Review

You may have heard that Demon’s Souls is pretty tough. That’s not entirely accurate. The truth is that Demon’s Souls is very, very simple. Everything about it is signposted. It wants you to exploit every inch of it. Enemies show what they’re doing from a million miles away. There’s always somewhere to hide, or to run to. And now, with the arrival of the remake on PS5, you have over a decade of encylopedia-like knowledge from hundreds of fellow players…

Tetris Effect: Connected Review

How good can Tetris get? The definitive version on the Gameboy (or NES) did everything that this genre needed to do. Every effort since has just been more of the same. How much innovation can there be after billions of blocks? Turns out, you can squeeze quite a lot out of it. There’s been plenty to play on Xbox Series X this past week, but Tetris Effect: Connected has proven to be the most addictive. If you have Gamepass, there’s…

Overcooked! All You Can Eat – Review

It’s time to enjoy two of the best co-op games ever made… again. Overcooked! All You Can Eat combines the first and second games together into a “remastered” pack on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, but it feels a bit like warming up leftovers. If you’ve never played this series before and have somebody to play it with, disregard any negativity in the coming 900 or so words. They are fantastic fun and you’ll get an awful lot out…

Dirt 5 Review

How do you make a great racing game like Dirt 5 into a must-play experience? You optimise it for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. It’s that easy. Racing should be a bigger genre than it is. When you look at the mobile scene, the biggest titles are things that are intense, fun and playable in short bursts. That’s driving games to a tee. We haven’t been able to have that pleasure on console until now. The traditional experience has…

Hammerting Review

Digging its way into Steam Early Access tomorrow is Hammerting, a dwarven mining sim from Warpzone Studios that combines colony management, base creation, mountain exploration and the story of a great war for the overworld. Balance will be key as you recruit more dwarves to assist your operations, all while stockpiling your mountain treasure hoard and complete tasks sent from your armies above - all while risking the perils below. While there is seemingly no cap on the market for sim games, it has become quite difficult to distinguish yourself among the ...
